When selecting the perfect floors for your home there are many things to consider, but given the wide array of different flooring options on the market there is bound to be one to fit everyone’s personal taste. Flooring is more customisable than ever, with flooring manufacturers getting innovative, using creative materials and finishes. Mentioned below are five of the trendiest flooring solutions happening right now.

Stone – natural, yet beautiful
Using stone in an area is a fantastic way to add classy natural touches into a room, offering gorgeous finishes and textures to add a bit of luxury to the environment. Stone products are practical due to their longevity, stain resistant qualities and ability to resist moisture when treated properly however can really break a budget! A more pocket friendly option is to have stone effect luxury vinyl tiles which are even easier to keep clean.

Mixing it up with carpeted stairs and wooden floored hallway
This is a trend that can run and run. Not only does a carpeted staircase allow for softer tread up the stairs at night (especially useful if you have kids!) but the wooden floor also allows for easy clean-up when muddy feet come tearing through the door. Classic, stylish and chic, this look is practical but gorgeous and suits any style of home.

Light up your rooms with bright carpets
Colour is in this year, and the brighter the better. We’re seeing bold tones, especially in pinks, purples and reds coming into homes all across the country. Long gone are the days where carpets were meant to blend in. Now, a bold splash of colour beneath your feet can provide a new dimension to every room.

Patterns to thrill – Tartan and Plaid
If you don’t want a block colour carpet, then this is a trend that might be right up your street. Go for neutral shades for a cosy lounge or perhaps bold greens and reds for the dining room, and make a feature of these fabulous carpets. You could team this trend with the carpeted stairs/wooden hall look for a spectacular entryway to your home.

Striped Carpets
Striped carpeting is very trendy this year, offering a creative way to infuse colour and visual stimulation into a room. Stripes fit in seamlessly with any decor, perfectly complimenting other design elements.

Choosing the right stripe in a room can help to correct the dimensions of a space, and although popular right now, have a timeless feel, never becoming unfashionable. Striped carpeting is durable and will last considerable lengths of time, easily camouflaging dirt, making it a budget friendly and fashionable flooring option.
